Chair porn

It's been ages since I've done a chair porn post. I have a chair fetish you see, and have a hard time not bringing home a cool chair every now and then. And because I'm feeling a bit guilty for not having blogged last Sunday and wanting to spend the evening with my husband off the computer for a change, I thought I'd just slap up some chair porn for your viewing pleasure.

The "nothing is happening with my house renovation" reading guide

Waiting, waiting, waiting. Nothing is happening on the reno front. My painter is delayed another 5 weeks. Lucky I'm a patient woman. (That sound you just heard was my husband choking with laughter.) I'm sure there is a chair to glue, a cupboard to strip, a painting to frame and a slipcover to sew but today is so beautiful and sunny I'm not going to lift a hammer, push a paintbrush or even dust a shelf. I'm taking me time. Perhaps some shopping in my favourite local shops? Maybe a bit of blog surfing? Bliss.











House of Honey

Tamara Kaye-Honey is a Canadian now living in Los Angeles who, like many interior designers/decorators, started out in fashion. She's been in the business of interiors since 2003 and her eclectic designs are punchy, witty and dramatic. Tamara's work combines high and low, old and new pieces (love that!) to create modern spaces that are not so serious. I'm a big fan. (Check out House of Honey, her online shop stocked with to-die-for, must-have items!)

Yann Deret

Finish the week just as it was started with beautiful pictures of inspiring rooms. Remember my post on KO Studio? The photographer of those golden delights is Yann Deret and of course I had to share more of his portfolio. There is a certain something, is there not, about his work? Elegant and refrained, simply seductive. Except when it is vibrant and fun! High end or low, moody and modern, white, bright and punchy, Yann Deret captures it all through his lens and presents us with the dream space.

It's almost Friday (thank gawd) and I wanted to do a quick post before I hit the sack to welcome a new advertiser to desire to inspire. k19studio is recently established in Germany, with the notion that people can bring original modern artwork into their homes at a fraction of the cost of art found in galleries. Here is a bit of info: Pictures presented by k19studio are the geometric abstract painting executed in the technique of acrylic on canvas or acrylic on aluminum. Attention! It's not printed matter, it's not posters, it's the real original pictures, each of which, the artist makes individually, manually.
On the k19studio site a few themes each with a set of samples and various sizes are presented. You can choose the sample and the size you like. From this sample we will make the picture in the acrylic on canvas or on aluminum technique for you. Each sample is used a limited number of times (max. 5)

Check out some very cool completed works below (the organic geometry line is my favourite):
